              Through the simple act of a hair cut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world. Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact. Joshua... hopes he can help the homeless, not by offering them money or food, but by giving them a haircut. --Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us (Netflix) When you're on the fringes of society, being recognized can mean everything. In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital and began posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world. Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.
